Sweet Corn Muffins
Every now and then you hit a gold mine when you find good recipes. I love Sweet Corn Muffins. These moist, delectable muffins have a huge puffy top that’s second to none. While the original recipe called for a full cup of sugar, I decreased the amount slightly so that the muffins wouldn’t be quite so sweet. I also used a stone ground cornmeal that provides a superb texture in the muffin over the excessively refined cornmeal usually purchased at the store.
Okay, I admit I love following food blogs as ways to find delicious new recipes to try out. Most of the time I find out about these blogs by doing searches on Pinterest for a specific ingredient or food that I want to make. When I recently found two recipes on this blog, I decided to start following them on Blog Lovin’.
I made Sweet Corn Muffins and Slow Cooker Chili with Black Beans and Corn recently for the son and daughter-in-law of a friend from our Sunday school class. They recently had a newborn girl so I made up these recipes before the birth and put both of them in the freezer along with a batch of Candy Corn Cupcakes to give to them after they got home from the hospital. All I can tell you is both of the recipes were phenomenal.
If you’re in the mood for a Sweet Corn Muffin you’ve got to give this tasty recipe a try. One of the ways I get muffins to pop up so high is by starting the temperature at 425. Then after 5 minutes when the baking powder has activated and the muffins have raised slightly, the temperature is reduced to 350. That sets the muffins so they won’t sink later. If you love a good chili during these cold winter months, add a batch of these muffins and you’ll find them both great comfort food. We did.
Sweet Corn Muffins are festive, beautiful and delicious for any breakfast or dinner treat.
